Our masthead says that our name is derived from the Persian word for resting place or place of transience. This etymology is absolutely correct. Many of us came to Montreal to rest from turmoil, to learn, to test the waters (or the proverbial snow) and to consolidate our position before returning home to make a mark there. But Montreal has now become our physical dwelling and Montreal Serai is where our spirit dwells. What is absolutely untrue is that Montreal Serai is a resting place. Just the opposite: it is a space for artistic experimentation, intellectual ferment, political questioning and the creation of a new paradigm for what it means to be human.

People who want to understand the relationships between art, social change, activism, politics and the mass media should be reading FUSE!
